This is precisely what the press release gives us, which tells us that in Crusader Kings III: Royal Court, players will face “new challenges as their courtiers demand their precious attention.” Hmmm … OK.
The most influential lords will attract troubadours and mnestrels, decorate their halls with family relics, and respond to the many pleas of their subjects.
Here is all that awaits you in this extension:
- The throne room – A visual representation of the court that will reflect the majesty and prestige accumulated by the player’s dynasty.
- Sit in the yard – Vassals and courtiers will come to seek the help of their lord to settle their problems or to seek judgment.
- A grandiose courtyard – Magnificent ornaments and abundant food: enough to arouse jealousy among the rivals of the lords and admiration among his distinguished guests.
- Inspired subjects – The most talented artists, craftsmen and thinkers in the known world will be able to work on new projects and enrich the player’s backyard with treasures and relics.
- Multicultural kingdoms – The mixing of populations over large geographic areas will help create hybrid cultures.
- Adopt a new culture – Sometimes it will be necessary to try something new to satisfy your ambitions.
This extension will be accompanied by a major, completely free update which will add posts to the court for courtiers, a new cultural interface etc.
